    The Commedia

    BY:Eben Klemm

    It’s January.  Your energy to entertain is probably ebbing, as well as your capacity for strong or rich drinks.  Here’s a simple drink which recognizes that wintertime is the time to consume as much esoteric citrus as possible.  The combination of herbs, spices and citrus rind that compose Averna, a digestivo liqueur from Sicily, serves […]

    Taking Stock

    BY:204 Main

    At 204 Main Bar & Bistro we aim to keep the food fresh, simple and honest. Simple, though, doesn’t always mean quick. That’s why I begin each day at the restaurant, as I’m beginning this blog, by making chicken stock. Calling it a recipe is a bit of a stretch. I cover chicken parts with […]

    All Tea-ed Up

    BY:Josh and Brent

    Brent grew up drinking well-sweetened tea, brewed over hours in the hot Southern sun.  Josh spent a few of his college years brewing tea in a coffee shop (a long, long time before anyone knew what a barista was).  On a recent trip to Madison, Wisconsin, we had the pleasure of meeting another small business […]

    Christmas Pudding

    BY:Roger Swayze

    The Christmas Pudding that Fizzled   I have always enjoyed the stories written by Charles Dickens.  Over the years he has inspired me to love anything that is “Olde English” especially things that pertain to the holidays.  A few years ago I spotted a tinned pudding mold while I was pre-holiday shopping at a Williams-Sonoma […]

    Got you Covered

    BY:Josh and Brent

      Many of the products we design at Beekman 1802 are the result of an unmet need.   The Iron Block Bud Vase came about because we wanted a way to display towering branches of cherry and apple blossoms.  Our Fresh Air multi-purpose room and body sprays came about because we wanted a beautiful scent that […]

    Goat Cheese Gooseberry Fool

    BY:Josh and Brent

    The Fool (or in Old English, “Foole,”) is one of the earliest recorded English desserts, dating back to the Elizabethan era. While some suggest the name derives from the French word foule, or “to crush,” other etymologists claim that the name means pretty much what you think it does -something silly and unimportant. Earliest written […]

    8 Prep-minute Strawberry/Basil Galette

    BY:Josh and Brent

    You know how sometimes you have last minute visitors dropping by and you sorta want to just open up a bag of store-bought cookies but you can’t really do that because you have a fancy cookbook coming out in a few months, and a website all about good living, and a TV show where everything […]

    Tab Hunter Garlic Scape Pesto

    BY:Josh and Brent

      What does 1950’s screen star Tab Hunter have to do with garlic scapes and pesto? Well, we’ll be honest…not much. But, as some of you already know, we often name recipes after the person who either inspired or simply ate the meal with us. Last winter, Josh appeared in a double-billing book reading in […]

    Goat Milk Cheesecake

    BY:Josh and Brent

    Last year we worked with one of our dear friends, Suzann Kipp, to develop a twist on the classic cheese cake—using goat milk from the farm.  We also wanted to think of a unique crust.  During William Beekman’s time, one of the few baked goods readily available to satisfy his sweet tooth was short bread, […]
